This year we got creative with the Roscón de Reyes! We know the classic flavors of cream and truffle (great, of course) but what if we go beyond that? The Roscón de Reyes is the perfect excuse to demonstrate our culinary skills and give our loved ones a pleasant surprise. With these fillings, we give the roscón de Reyes that sweet final touch that we like so much. We recommend that you use a pastry bag for the filling. Do you dare to try these innovative fillings?

You can use the soft turrón that you like: jijona, truffle, coconut, yolk… Mix the turrón with the liquid cream (50 ml) in a container. In another bowl, whip the cream (100 ml) with a spoonful of sugar. Mix both together. Heat the remaining cream and dissolve the gelatine in it. Add this and the whipped egg white to the cream. Stir gently.
